Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia is a running series that centers around a mercenary group of Monster Hunters known as MHI.
The first book in the series follows Owen Pitt before he joins Monster Hunter International in the hunt for monsters from myth, legend, and literature. Owen wasn’t any ordinary accountant even before he was attacked by a werewolf, he was one of the top marksmen in the country and an underground pit fighter before tragedy forced him to decide to lead a life of normalcy. After his boss tries to take a bite out of him, however, he gets recruited by MHI and decides that hunting monsters and saving lives would be fun as hell. Shortly after making it through training, Owen starts having prophetic dreams and visits from cranky spirits and his strange world gets stranger. The stakes get raised and the action intensifies as the book takes you on a journey of paramilitary battles with the supernatural forces of evil. The book contains strong military themes while simultaneously preaching that authority should be questioned as often as possible. Some of the later books in the series allows you to follow on other characters journeys. Some of the characters are fleshed out and given more depth, such as Earl Harbinger who you follow on his mission to save a town from a pack of wild werewolves. While others introduce new characters such as Chad, the former marine with a genius intellect and chip on his shoulder the gets recruited after saving a town from zombie horde armed with nothing but a small 22. Caliber pistol. The books never cease to keep you turning pages and completely engrossed. The characters are well written and the author easily sucks you into this modern adult fantasy world that feels real enough to believe but fantastic enough to get lost in.
The series is ongoing and I’m sure that they will continue to thrill and intrigue all those who choose to pick up and join the hunt for Perpetual Unearthly Forces.
